They should give discounts just for placing those dumb giant price stickers.

I purchased halo 4 used from gamestop, never opened the case, took it back for trade in and got a refurbished fee tacked on to it

WTF?


Wow!

All I know is since I got a deal on a "like new" copy of walking dead on amazon warehouse I'm taking my "new" opened copy back to GameStop tomorrow! They will give me back all my money. Lol

Mine had no seal. It has a New sticker on the front saying $29.99. I didn't even notice it until I got home.

Traded a few games from BF that I beat for what I paid for them and then some extra for the gas/hassle. Not a bad way to play games for free, or get paid for playing.

Well I sure hope I don't have any issues. I just think it's bullshit to sell me an opened game as new, and charge me full price. I know the game is fine, but knowing that I will get the SAME thing from AWD for $22 I can't keep the GameStop copy. If I would have seen the copy opened when I paid I probably would have refused it.

If they require a game to be unopened and a receipt to return it you can't sell an opened game as "new".

I hate BS like that and Dbag employees that go out of their way to find something wrong with a disc.

Same thing Happened to me with Time Crisis Razing Storm. Bought it used from them for move but never played, employee tried to tack a fee on....I said give me my game and walked out took it to the other GS down the road and traded it in no problem.

In my experience employees that do these acts are new recently hired ones. I try to stay away from those

I just want to thank everyone who posted here because I would have had no idea about this sale. I traded for the first time in about 3 years at Gamestop (some extra games I had gotten really cheap over the last year) and ended up with about $150 in credit. I picked up a bunch of iTunes gift cards and enough Wii U / 3DS Cards to get Just Dance 4 for Wii U (digitally) and most of Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Really appreciate it guys :).

Well yeah I'd refuse that, but its never happened to me


Like I said, I would have, but it was being flipped directly to Best Buy. That said, I happily did the survey blasting them over it.

Im pretty sure last time only Mass Effect 3 lost value during the promotion. Not sure why people think a ton of games lost their value last time.

Here's another nice little service they add (or at least they previously did) to their "new" games; the employees can take them home to play and bring them back to sell as new....

While that wouldn't surprise me, I'm pretty sure they are only allowed to do that with the used games. Although there are probably some employees that take home the gutted copies.

After my fiasco earlier this year trying to get a "new" copy of Dirt 3 CE and continually being given open copies w/ the standard edition disk, I swore never to buy another opened "new" game from GS again. I almost never buy new from them now period - I'm making an exception for Ni No Kuni since they're the only place you can get the steel book, but otherwise I'd much rather buy new from BB anyway so I can take advantage of the 2-month price match period.

But yeah, they've been doing it forever and they aren't about to stop because 95% of their customers simply don't care. Only thing you can do is just shop someplace else.

EDIT: typo

Dunno, but I'm sure if you buy a sealed copy of it it is the actual CE. I did a ton of research online, and couldn't find any proof of anyone having that issue after buying a sealed copy of the game.
